Yokohama India-backed endurance expedition sets new record

Endurance traveling enthusiast, Paras Bhimta, backed by Yokohama India, has successfully accomplished the fastest North to South expedition on four wheels in the solo category. The demanding expedition was a testament to the tenacity and zeal shown by Bhimta even after inclement weather conditions challenged him.

The endurance expedition, which was to begin on September 20th, 2022, finally got underway on the 23rd of September due to unruly weather. The weather could not dampen the gutsy spirits of Paras Bhimta and his vehicle, which was underpinned by four long-lasting Yokohama Geolandar AT G015. The expedition concluded in a record-breaking time frame of 55 hours and 38 minutes, beating the previous record of 56 hours and 20 minutes.

The Geolandar AT G015 by Yokohama is a high-dimension all-terrain tyre that has unmatched durability and longer tread life. It has been specifically designed for excellent wet grip and off-road traction. The features of this tyre made it an appropriate choice that encouraged a stress-free attempt for such a record-breaking expedition.

On the success of this arduous endeavor, Harshwardhan Honmode, Director of Yokohama India, said, “The resilient spirit of Paras Bhimta personifies Yokohama India’s brand philosophy, which is celebrating the motoring lifestyle. We cannot be prouder of the remarkable feat he has been able to accomplish. On the toughest terrains and contrasting road conditions of India both Paras and our Geolandar Tyres proved that when the going gets tough, the tough get going. We look forward to more challenges of attrition to showcase our durability.”
